This Felt version of Van Gogh's "Six Sunflowers" was created by Patty Peterson We will be drawing for the lucky winner this Sunday on May Day. All proceeds from the ticket sales are going to the Red Cross Ukrainian relief fund.
The Van Gogh painting exists only in photographs since the original was destroyed in Japan in 1945.
Thanks to Patty for this beautiful representation and for the thought to create a way to raise aid for our Ukrainian neighbors.
We have to date raised close to 1000.00.

Gene Gagliano Book Signing
We had the privilege of hosting Gene Gagliano, Wyoming State Poet Laureate and Children's author for a book signing today! It was a pleasure to have him here and sharing his work with everyone who came to the gallery.
If you haven't had the privilege of reading his poetry, you should treat yourself to the smiles and brightness it will bring you.
Featured Artist: Emily Keith
Owner and creator of Nature's Tapestry, Emily Gorham Keith is a tapestry artist who lives in Tensleep, Wyoming.
She says her Nature's Tapestry originals reflect her love affair with natural fiber's luscious hand, its varied textures and the vibrancy of its colors.
Emily uses traditional rug hooks on linen backing to create her highly textured works. Her originals are finished with a fabric backing for added durability.
She has transformed a few of these lovely tapestries into gorgeous decorative pillows stuffed with the raw wool from which they originated.
For each composition, she takes the raw fiber and spins it, dyes it and stitches each individual loop into a tapestry that is her own original creation.
Each piece is truly a labor of love.
Featured Artist: Lisa Norman
Fine artist, photographer, teacher and graphic designer Lisa Norman is a gem in our collection here at Wyoming In Color. A graduate of the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver, she uses light and depth to illustrate the beauty of our local area and culture. Her background in medical illustration helps create the realism and detail in every aspect of her work.
Lisa has shown pieces in the Bradford Brinton Art Museum, participates in the annual Black Hills Stock Show Quick Draw and teaches art classes locally and online. You can learn more and even take some of her classes through her website www.artwithlisa.com.
This Buffalo native has had her work shown in galleries and private collections across the country.
The gallery carries oil originals, photography on canvas, framed prints, notecards and children's books which she has illustrated.

Bull Rider by Belinda Daugherty
This acrylic Ink original by Belinda Daugherty sold this week. Found a home in Seattle. Not a great Photo but it's all I had in my files.
March 24th, 2019
So This is the result after 3 years of living on plywood floors, an old orange counter top, no dish washer and a lousy sink.....but the good part is that we had this unusually large space to work with....all things are possible with a little patience and waiting for sales. Chris found the two Grohe faucets (German made), 2 under mount insulated 16 gauge (note:hard to find that quality at any big box store) stainless sinks (franke) ....all high end fixtures for only 800.00 total. He found them on the Houzz app.
So many ways to get real quality at the same cost as cheaper versions with plastic workings.....no one should have to compromise on cheap faucets. The one tool in your home you will use countless times each day.
I'll share my thoughts on handles and knobs next time....always about saving money in the right areas so you can have what you really want
Restoring rustic log built home
When we bought our home we didn't realize that behind all the old paper sheetrock was hewn logs everywhere and 20 foot long 2 x 12 boards on the ceiliings, which were supported by Even larger beams. The original construction was covered over by ceiling tiles and layers of bad drywall, paint and paper. After much uncovering we are finally near the end.
I will have used over 500 ft of backer rod (a foam type rope that is used to fill large gaps before caulking) and many cases of paintable caulking. I'm so grateful for my painters scaffold and lots of experience painting ceilings.
